To do this, the organization mobilizes resources and directs all efforts towards imparting technological knowledge in the underprivileged through a "Holistic teaching and learning experience" to equip young individuals in rural areas with skills that will enable them compete on a leveled playing field in a competitive world.

Our activities and efforts are centered around these Core Values:

  • Impact

What our stakeholders say

As a teacher, I have always had difficulty in teaching ICT as a subject in school because there are no materials for the students to use. It is always theoretical because there is only one laptop available. Tech Era has given my students the opportunity to have access to computers and how the tutors teach my students with humility and so much care is amazing. I have personally learnt a lot even as a teacher and it is incredible to see the enthusiasm with which students climb the hills of Ashesi for the sessions.

Sir Frederick ICT teacher, Fidelity International School

“While an IT initiative is not necessarily a novel project at Ashesi (many have ben short-lived), the angle Tech Era has employed is quite ingenious.
Rather than just focusing on the basic skills needed to be computer literate, the students from Berekuso are given tasks that challenge them to think critically and apply themselves in a variety of ways. An example is one project I saw, where they were tasked to use Paint, an illustrations software, to create their own stories. Such projects not only improve the literacy of the children, but also but also encourage them to think broadly about solving problems”.

Michael Quansah Public Relations Officer, Ashesi University College

I appreciate what you and your guys have done for us since you started this program. We can see you guys have good intentions for us and may God bless all Ashesi students.
